I'm still making valliant attempts to use up my prize winning giant pumpkin before it rots away.
I must admit, more than half has already gone on the compost heap, it is just too big to deal with and isn't doing well indoors. Leo is doing his best to help the process along.. if you look carefully at the right hand point of the pumpkin (click on the picture to enlarge) you will see some suspicious 'nibbling' type marks!!! Thanks for helping Leo!
So pounds and pounds of pumpkin chunks were laid out on the shelves of the dehydrator.
And just 24 hours later they had almost disappeared to little dry pumpkin chips. Just goes to show just how much water there is in this type of giant pumpkin.
So I may find a use for these little pumpkin chips over the next few months? in soups, stews, muffins, curry?? who knows.
I might just put this jar of dried pumpkin chips in the freezer and they will last a bit longer.
